Iniesta, who scored the victor in the 2010 World Cup final, is joining J-League club Vissel Kobe next season.

Iniesta was left on the bench for the last-16 clash on Sunday, having started all of Spain's three group games, but was introduced on 67 minutes for his 131st global cap.

"Now is the time to step aside and it hasn't been an easy decision, on the contrary, I have been thinking about it for many months", he noted.

Andres Iniesta described Spain's World Cup elimination on penalties on Sunday as the saddest day of his career as he confirmed his retirement from worldwide football.

Iniesta, who will play for Japanese side Vissel Kobe next season after ending his 22-year Barcelona career in May, is confident Spain can rebuild ahead of the next World Cup in Qatar.

"I appreciate the support, I'm sure this will make me stronger". "I'm proud and have nothing negative to say to the whole group that has been in Russia, Hierro and all his team, the players, the coaching staff, all those who have been here".

The Anthem, Ariz. woman closed her original Facebook post asking her followers to "please say a little prayer for my sweet hero". Godwin says she and the young golden retriever were on a walk, when she almost stepped on the rattler.

'We're f***** but we'll get up again and never give up'. "It isn't the farewell I dreamt about but football and life can be like that", recognised Iniesta. It has been a pleasure to share all these years with you.

The idea that Spain, boasting a squad bursting with winners at club and worldwide level, could be sent home by the lowest-ranked team in the tournament would have sounded preposterous just a month ago, but as the minutes ticked by at the Luzhniki stadium it seemed ever more likely.

'The future is thrilling, with a great group of unbelievable players that from now on will have me as an unconditional supporter.

Iniesta also thanked the coaches and the Spanish Football Federation for their support throughout his global career and signed off by praising his family. "I want to extend my honest thanks to an exemplary professional", he said.

The Russians will be hoping to continue to benefit from the hosts' dividend to better the single semi-final appearance that the Soviet Union achieved in 1966.
